Hi there! My name is Emily and I am a third-year student nurse studying at ARU Peterborough campus. I live about ten miles away from the campus, with my parents. I am fortunate to study my course whilst living at home - making it cheaper, but still face the same challenges all students face!
Having the opportunity to study at ARU has been amazing for me. I have made some great friends for life and met some of the most intelligent and resilient lecturers who I will aspire to practice like in my future career.
I have been lucky enough to visit a wide variety of placements during my two years so far at ARU, including surgical, medical, intensive care and community… all of which I loved and have gained a wide knowledge from! Each one has been so different and individually given me so much comprehension I will take forward to my future practice. I am yet to decide where I would like to specialise and work, as each area has given me a great privilege and insight. But throughout my blogs I will share my individual feelings for each area I work in.
